    Crohn's and stomach pain

    Hey all,

    I've had Crohn's for many years now but I have been feeling pretty good the last 8 months or so. My last problem was a pseudo-obstrucion that was resolved with Mestinon. I take only Asacol at this point to control Crohn's.

    I've had upper GI issues over the years: gerd, ulcers in duodenum, ulcers in esophagus, this last due to clindamyacin. Now I take Prevacid twice a day and I've been fine for a good 8 years more or less.

    I'm experiencing a new pain about 2 inches of so above the navel and it starts with eating almost anything (and I mean as soon as I swallow) and last a while. I've never had this specific pain and I'm wondering should I go see my GI? The pain isn't that bad (5 or so), but it is annoying.

    Could Crohn's cause this kind of symptoms? Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Hi there, Ive been having the same pain last couple of days. Mine started with very high fever and flu like symptoms for 3 days..now its a pain all over my stomach. worse pain for me is above my belly button. Hurts really bad when I eat or drink. going to give it another few days before going to the doc.. already had a operation due to crohns.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Check out Dr Tom Borody Australia. He has been curing crohns and other conditions for years. St. Vincents Hospital Sydney/Melbourne are trialing his method as we speak.
